HUTT VALLEY BRANCH MEETINGS
Notice of Annual General Meeting 2014 Thursday 8 May, 7.30pm
The Hutt Valley Branch NZSG AGM for 2014 will be held in conjunction with the May Evening Meeting. CLICK HERE for the Branch's audited accounts, minutes from last year's AGM, the nomination form for committee members and office holders, etc.
After the AGM proceedings, Branch member Bob Vine will speak about his grandfather “Sergeant Sydney Vine MM, an English ANZAC who enlisted in Wellington, where he was employed as Chauffeur at Government House. It would seem, he saw a posting on the Western Front as an opportunity to receive free passage to England to marry and legitimise the birth of his first-born, conceived in New Zealand and born in England. Real Mills and Boon stuff!”
Morning Meeting, Thurs 15 May, 10.00am
Stories of Your World War I Servicemen. Members are invited to tell the stories of their family members in World War I (about 10 minutes each).
